Bronze Labrador Sculptures

Labradors are one of the most popular dogs in the world. Their kind and playful spirit and gentle temperment makes them the most wonderful family pet, so it’s no wonder bronze Labrador sculptures make up a key part of our dog sculpture collection.

In this collection, you will find a range of different bronze Labrador sculptures, from life size Labrador sculptures to smaller mantelpiece-sized statues. There are also a number of Labrador portraits in the collection.

About Bronze Labrador sculptures by Tanya Russell MRBS

Tanya is best known for her animal sculptures, and is becoming particularly well known for her dog sculpture. She works in Foundry Bronze, Bronze Resin (also known as Cold Cast Bronze). Tanya has been a sculptor her whole life, and seriously started her study at sixteen years old, when she apprenticed with her mother and father, sculptors Lorne McKean FRBS and Edwin Russell FRBS.

Tanya’s passion is animals and animal welfare, and much of the work over her career has been done to raise money for animal charities, or raise awareness for animal welfare causes. 10% of proceeds from the sale of our bronze Labrador sculptures support The Dogs Trust.

Life-size Bronze Labrador Sculptures

Life-size bronze Labradors can make a great addition to any dog-loving home or garden, and they are particularly popular as in memoriam pieces for beloved pets that have passed away. Outdoor sculptures such as those in Tanya’s collection these perfectly capture the larger-than-life spirit and movement of Labradors. The Labrador Playing with Toy sculpture and Labrador Sitting On Step sculpture are particularly wonderful examples of this.

Small Bronze Labrador Sculptures

Small bronze Labrador statues are ideal for indoor display, including mantelpieces, shelves and windowsills. If you are looking for a smaller and more affordable way to add a bronze Labrador to your collection, a smaller piece such as the Playing Labrador sculpture could be more suitable.

About Bronze Resin & Foundry Bronze

Most of our bronze Labrador statues are available in both bronze resin and foundry bronze. 

Bronze resin is a bronze metal powder mixed with a resin to create the appearance of foundry bronze metal, but is more affordable and lightweight. Foundry bronze, however, refers to the poured molten metal that is cast solid or hollow, depending on size, at a bronze foundry (using the traditional lost wax process). It is more robust and will appreciate in value.
